"Stay The Night" as written by Mariah Carey, Thomas Randolph Bell, Linda Creed and Kanye Omari West....
It's four o'clock in the morning,
I can't take another second of this excuse for taste,
Take a chance
Stay the night
Oh why don't we take a taxi back to mine,
I'm sure that we'll find a way to pass the time,
Take a chance
And stay the night

If it's a question of timing, I'll wait
If there's a reason I'll right, always
I gave you the night, coz I know what I found
I think of you and my heart beats a little louder
A little louder

I can't decide if you're giving me a sign,
Well maybe you are just like this all the time,
Take a chance
Stay the night
Oh please don't tell me you're worried you might find
When morning comes you regret you crossed that line,
Take a chance
Stay the night

If it's a question of timing, I'll wait
If there's a reason I'll right, always
I gave you the night, coz I know what I found
I think of you and my heart beats a little louder

If it's a question of timing, I'll wait
If there's a reason I'll right, always
I gave you the night, coz I know what I found
I think of you and my heart beats a little louder
My heart beats a little louder
I tell you my heart beats a little louder
Oh, stay the night
Stay the night
Stay the night, come on
(Stay The Night)

    I think what he is saying is that he is willing to wait till she's ready, but if there is a reason she isn't ready then he will fix it, every time. He doesn't want to make her do something she isn't willing to do, but he wishes she would "take a chance."

    General Commenttotally agree with procstella. this song is a classic.
    it mixes so many genres together- jazz, pop, rock, indie, the list goes on... but the main thing is: they do it successfully. This song is fun, poppy and lovely. can't wait for the album.

    Any thoughts?

    General CommentMaybe it should be "If there's a reason I'll WRITE always"???

    Otherwise, I think this song is pretty simple to understand! Guy really likes this girl, wants her to "stay the night" so to speak, and thinks maybe she's just tentative and actually likes him too
    ("I can't decide if you're giving me a sign,
    well maybe you are just like this all the time") but asks her to "Take a chance".

    Love it.
